I recieved the very sad news on friday that my good friend (no doubt known by many of the Brits on this site) Doug Santillo unexpectedly passed away thursday night after a very short illness.
He was a very active member of the modelling community in
Plymouth and was looking forward to attending the show at Yeovilton this eekend with his compatriots Andy and Mike with whom he made up the M.A.D model club.
I had the good fortune to first meet Doug through our mutual interest in IDF Shermans which led to numerous trips together to Israel and attendances at AMPS.
Doug served with the RAF as a weapons technician and lately worked in Plymough hospital, always larger than life he will be sorely missed at the South West of England Model shows.
Any further details will be passed as I know them
MJH (raising a beer to Doug tonight)
